COVID-19 Community Report Episode 24: Talking Public Health and Reopening in Yolo County, and Then Some Poetry on June 16, 2020

With reopening and its attendant risks firmly in mind, we take a deep dive into public health again with Dr. Mary Ann Limbos of Yolo County Public Health.  Then we hear from a doctor of a different sort, Dr. Andy Jones, who has taught writing classes at UC Davis since 1990.

With Dr. Mary Ann Limbos we ask what kinds of numbers are we seeing statewide, and here in Yolo County? What kinds of metrics does the County keep a close eye on, and what would be the tipping point for closing down again? In a difficult situation during an unprecedented time, Dr. Limbos is our foremost source of information here in Yolo County.

Switching gears, we speak to Dr. Andy Jones about adjusting his projects to the new virtual format.  Committed to outreach and encouraging cross-disciplinary thinking, Andy has hosted "Dr. Andy's Poetry and Technology Hour" on radio station KDVS since 2000. He is also the past Chair of the Cultural Arts and Entertainment Committee of the City of Davis, and the Poet Laureate emeritus of Davis, and prior to COVID-19, hosted the perennially popular Pubquiz at Devere's in Downtown Davis.
